Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina State Monday called on the 34 Local Government Council chairmen and traditional rulers to ensure that National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members deployed in their communities for one-year compulsory service were provided adequate security.
Masari made the call at the closing ceremony of the 2018 Batch B, Stream II corps members deployed in Katsina and Zamfara States at M.D Yusuf NYSC Permanent Orientation, Camp, Katsina.
The governor, who was represented by his Special Adviser on Youth Development, Ibrahim Aminu Khalel, said that corps members posted to ministries, departments, agencies and local governments should be protected in order to enhance their effective service year.
He urged them to be wary of people with questionable characters, conduct themselves as role models and responsible leaders, warning the female members to avoid indecent and provocative dressings that may contradict the cultural beliefs of their host communities.
Masari encouraged them to strive and add value to their host communities by leaving good legacies through the provision of developmental projects that would ameliorate the sufferings of ruler dwellers.
